Does anybody else subscribe to Games World Of Puzzles magazine?

I really liked the Tectonic logic puzzles in the most recent issue -- the holiday issue. Solving them feels good in the same way that solving Paint-By-Numbers puzzles does, but they are quite different.

Anyway, I was curious if anybody else had run across them too.

Neat. The original seems to be Japanese, like many logic puzzles. It is called Suguru there.

I found a site with some puzzles to try

Here's another site with an archive of 4 sizes/day for 17 years. Doing the math, that's almost 25,000 puzzles

Feels more like Sudoku to me. Still fun to play though.

Oh cool -- I tried out the Krazydad Suguru site. I like the random quotes it displays when you solve a puzzle.

I feel like the logic I needed to use to solve the puzzles in GWOP was much more complex than the logic on the Krazydad site. But maybe it's just getting easier with practice.

The Puzzle Madness site seems more comparable to the puzzles in GWOP -- they feel good to solve. Fun!

I have been playing this Suguru app on android and really like its levels of difficulty:
